Modelo : Ferrari 512S
The Ferrari 512S has no discernible casting differences from the normal HK version. It is even fully articulated like its domestic counterpart.The two reported paint colors,
gold and silver metal flake, are wholly unknown in the Mattel line and the black detail paint found on the 1972 release is omitted. The color of the dark interior is indiscernible
from the HK version, perhaps a bit darker. The glass is clear.
- Enamel Metal Flake Gold
- Enamel Metal Flake Silver?
- Medium Caps on the front
- Medium Caps on the rear
For many years, the Ferrari 512S was only known from fragmentary examples. Only two complete examples are known as of 2016.
The CIPSA version of this supercar is fully articulated like its domestic counterparts. The interior may be a bit darker but its not prominent.
The clear glass is definitely noticeable.
The base is identical to the normal HK release except for the lack of final polish.
The first was found by Rodrigo and is missing the hatch.
This one, which sold on ebay, in 2006, lacks the interior and glass. It was found by Alfonso.
This metal flake silver Ferrari 512S was reported in February 2012. It appears to be legitimate but no other CIPSA
car of any casting has been seen in this color.
As of 2016, there are only a few known examples of the Ferrari 512S, none are in good condition, making it one of the rarest CIPSA castings.
